WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) today addressed the U.S. House of Representatives in honor of the Moser Group of Indian Trail and Wingate University, which are partnering to collect and transport relief supplies for hurricane victims.

“Madam Speaker, I rise today in honor of The Moser Group and Wingate University for their extraordinary organizational and grassroots efforts to help victims of Hurricanes Irma in Florida and Harvey in Texas.

“This week, these two organizations will load two 18-wheeler trucks to deliver supplies directly to the affected areas.  Commitment to charity and compassion for victims of natural disasters is truly what makes America great.

“In North Carolina, we know all too well about the consequences of hurricanes.  98,000 homes and 19,000 businesses were destroyed by Hurricane Matthew, in which we are still recovering.  Organizations like The Moser Group and the Wingate University are key to recovery efforts across the country.  They are to be commended.  May God bless them as they continue to help people in need.”
